This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Paperwork Update

Luciana told us that Lino had received our translated USCIS approval and presented it to the court on Friday.  That means that the Brazilian court has everything they need to have from us and our approval and Letter of Invitation could be imminent.  She asked for a couple more days to find out when the court will make its next move.  

I desperately want to post pictures of our darlings, but we must be patient for a little while longer.  As SOON as we have our approval/invitation letter, all of our friends and family will see the faces we've fallen in love with.  

We're almost at the 100% mark when we are sure these children are our children.  Until then, we're getting everything ready, trusting God that they will be our sons and daughters, and reserving only the smallest sliver of our hearts just in case something unexpected happens.  I'd say 99.7%.  But that's just a guess.  .3% seems so huge, but God has brought us so far for this moment.  We trust that He will form our family the way He wants it to be--for His glory and not ours.
